GREEN Mascara?! — YSL Vinyl Couture Review*

Green mascara YSL Vinyl Couture review youtube video makeup

I had no idea what I was getting before slicing open a mysterious black box that arrived earlier that week.

My reaction says it all.

Watch to be entertained and see how I wear green mascara and handle the overwhelming flood of emotions that came with it.

Mommy, Me, & Maybelline

Mommy, me, and  maybelline 2

It’s Mother’s Day here in the U.S. The day of pastels, and lilies, and lots and lots of massive, heart-shaped cards entitled I love you THIS much! 

It was a lovely coincidence that I was sent a foundation too dark for my skin tone.

In true Mommy-Spirit, my mom graciously sat and smiled as I fluttered around her, dabbing, and spraying, and wiping. It got dicey when we came to mascara. But the foundation was definitely the star of the show.

Spring Pinks | Drugstore Makeup Tutorial

I almost called this post “Pink Eye.” Aren’t you glad I didn’t?

Dodged that bullet.

Filming Vlogmas last Christmas instilled a YouTube passion in me. With spring colors (and an easy makeup look even I can’t mess up), the time has come—*dramatic pause*—for me to conquer—*second dramatic pause*—my first makeup tutorial.

Do you like lemon cake? Or lemon frosting on a lemon cake? Or sugary sweet lemonade, with a lemon cookie on the side?

You may eat these lipsticks.

Did anyone else’s stomach growl just then?

Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Review

Maybelline the blushed nudes review rebekah koontz

I, like many other girls, have a problem. I admit to it the same way I’ll admit to liking not cleaning my room and drinking coffee.

I like makeup. I enjoy makeup. I currently am wearing makeup.

A lot of my money is invested in this hobby.

Recently, I found myself in the makeup isle at Target. Total coincidence. Very, clip-clop-clip-clop GASP! ‘Oh golly, however did I end up here?’

Then I wander the isles with my broke self, poking at the devil’s tummy to tempt me with something good.

NYX tried to allure me into a $7 eyeliner. And then my eyes fell on the Maybelline display. In all it’s pink chrome glory.

It's so beautiful

Get Ready With Me – The Beauty And The Beast Show

Beauty and the Beast is probably my favorite Disney movie. I say “probably” because, come on, it’s a Disney movie, can you really choose one?

When I heard that Beauty and the Beast would be performed at my local theater, my ears perked up intensely. When I found out one of my friends would be in it, I was more than interested. When I was told he was playing Beast, I was already checking my calendar and buying a ticket.

Dressing for plays has always made sense to me. I’ve always been the one in the performances which may have led to this concrete thought, but you should dress for plays.

The actors are dressing and performing and giving it their all. Audience members should attend with the same consideration.

Hence, why my Get Ready With Me is to get ready for a play.

Precious Moments Chapel and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not

It’s strange being in the same state for two blog posts. But ’tis true. We are still in Missouri.

But we’re not in — misery.

*lame laugh* Ha-ha. Ha-ha-ha.

Yeah, I bet Missourians find that old by now.

In short, today we went sight seeing, starting with a whole lot of “aww.”
